Surf Fly Fishing Class - with Ben Stricklin


The class covers reading the water and understanding tides, a discussion on species, equipment, casting techniques and line management, as well as wading safety and strategies for a successful outing. This class is designed to teach the secrets and techniques needed for a successful day in the local surf, which teems with halibut, corbina, perch and other species.


The class includes 3 hour Saturday morning classroom and casting session with a 4 hour "In the Surf" fishing session on Sunday morning where you will get a chance to implement what you have learned, all under the watchful eye of our instructor(s)!


A few items that are needed for the class: current fishing license, waders, boots, leaders, flies, waterproof jacket, polarized sunglasses, 6, 7 or 8 weight rod with 200- 300 grain line and a stripping basket (please let us know if you need to borrow rod/reel/stripping basket prior to the class).


All gear required will be covered in the classroom session and you will have opportunity to buy what you need at the conclusion of the class.
